“Made Beaufort more interesting”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2011

Rocky took us to all the best places. Staying in savannaj, we came up for the afternoon. We didn't know anything about the town. The tour really enhanced our brief visit.

“Never Again. Those poor horses.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2011

On vacation this year, a few girlfriends and took an afternoon trip down to Beaufort, South Carolina. The town was both quaint and charming and overall lovely. We bought tickets to take a horse-drawn carriage tour with Sea Island Carriage Company. Being a "horse person" myself, I was enthusiastic to meet the horse who would be drawing our carriage that day. When my two friends and I reached the location where we were to load onto the carriage however, I was dismayed. It was clear to me as this horse approached us that he was unwell. Because I own a few horses myself, I am familiar with symptoms of ill health in equine. right off the bat I noticed a very dull coat, thinness, and a general lackluster disposition. Although I do not remember his name, i distinctly remember that the horse did have relatively rare blue eyes. Despite my initial observation however, I took the tour (it lasted about an hour) and although the guide did a decent job the fact that the horse was in poor condition left a bad taste in my mouth. I plan on returning to Beaufort again on my next vacation but sadly, I don't feel like I can contribute further to this company whose animal negligence was so apparent.

“A good overview of Beaufort.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 15, 2011

We all thoroughly enjoyed our carriage ride through beautiful Beaufort. The tour was a good length and the guide was good. Sometimes I question some of the stories accuracy but it does make it interesting. A good carriage company overall.
